I had visiting family to entertain all weekend, virtually guaranteeing a patch mega, and it was pretty clear that spurning my little sister's company to go see some birds would be frowned upon. So I waited until early Sunday morning when she was still having a lie in to twitch them and was back to make coffee and muffins like a dutiful host before anyone else had stirred. I think that's allowed.
